Congrats to Teresa Fernandez for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!
Nominating Organization: Corinthian Colleges, Inc.
Honoree Category: Animals and Environment
Why Nominated: Teresa is very involved in her community with the rescue of animals (cats in particular), their rehabilitation back to health, and finding them their forever home through pet adoption events. In the too common event of homeless people/groups of people who won’t go to a shelter because it means giving up their pet, Teresa collects pet food and pet beds, etc. for those humans and their loyal companions. Her compassion for animals is genuine and heartfelt. I’d love to see her get the recognition she so greatly deserves for all of her efforts.
